Registered local charities and non-profit organizations are reminded to submit their applications soon for the Comox Valley Community Foundation’s (CVCF) Community Enrichment and ProfessionalDevelopment Grants, as applications will not be accepted after September 27th.

Community Enrichment Grants support projects and programs that are innovative and address
demonstrated need in the Comox Valley. Professional Development Grants assist local non-profits to access training and professional growth opportunities for staff and volunteers, which ultimately builds organizational capacity and strengthens our community. Complete details on both granting
opportunities including criteria and eligibility requirements are available on the CVCF website at
www.cvcfoundation.org.

The amount of funding available through the CVCF’s Community Enrichment Grants for 2020 is
significantly higher than in previous years, due to the additional $140,000 made available through
Vancouver Foundation’s The Robert & Florence Filberg Fund. This funding will augment existing grants and allow the Community Foundation to fund even more applications to enrich life in the Comox Valley.

Founded in 1996, the Comox Valley Community Foundation is a public charitable foundation registered with Canada Revenue Agency. The CVCF works with local families, businesses and organizations to create endowment funds that support the Comox Valley and its residents forever through grants and scholarships. Over the past 23 years, the CVCF has awarded more than $2.5 million to over 159 local non-profits and 180 students. For further information and to learn more about how you can make an impact, please visit www.cvcfoundation.org or call 250-338-8444.
